Choking hazard leads State Farm to promotional recall teddy bears.

Bloomberg News reported, “State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Co., the biggest property and casualty insurer in the U.S., will recall more than 800,000 toy bears given away by the company’s agents because they pose a choking hazard.” The company received one report that an 18-month-old had placed in her mouth a plastic eye from one of the 800,000 Good Neigh Bear plush toys wearing brown State Farm shirts that State Farm had distributed from September 2005 to March 2007. Consumers are being advised to keep the promotional toys away from young children, and to call State Farm or visit its website for further instructions.
